    Cafe 54 East End CBD

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    54 Pier Street, Perth
    It has a cosy friendly atmosphere and is very popular with office workers, passers by and guests from near-by hotels.
    Their blend is well balanced, silky smooth and has great mouth-feel with a hint of cocoa and a lovely aftertaste and is produced on a Synesso Sabre.
    Breakfast served until 11am. The lunch menu consists of pasta, quiches, squid, pizza, tasty salads and sandwiches.
    Well worth a visit when visiting Perth.

    Re: Cafe 54 East End CBD

    I was staying at the Aaron on Pier Street last week. Hadnt done any research for Perth CBD coffee, but not fancying the usual hot plate stuff in the hotel I just wandered out for any nearby likely cafe. Cafe 54 was the nearerst, 2 doors down and looked OK, so I went in. Definitely got lucky on that one. Excellent FWs, picolo latte and espresso, which I made a point of making time for over the two days. The breakfast was good too, and a nice place to sit. Ill be making my hotel choices based on it if Im back in town.

    Grabbed myself a double shot latte to go... this morning as i strolled by on my way to work. They are using a local indy milk supplier which caught my attention as its packaged in weird softpaks that looked awkward to pour.
    Made a great coffee though paired with the synesso.
    Noticed a lonely la Marz in the corner too.

    for me... Urbanista still leads the way.

    Personally a favourite of mine, my other half and I thoroughly enjoy the coffee here.

    Not simply because the coffee is great (although thats one good point! Haha) but the ambiance, it simply felt to me, like I could sit there and talk with whoever I am with for quite a while. Maybe its perhaps the way everything is semi well hidden outside, great for the coming summer months!

    Yet to try the food though. But surely something I should give a try when I feel like winding down after work. Keep up the good work 54. :)

    Stayed for a toasted chicken sandwich to go with the espresso and flat white in the second room.

    Has a comfortable vibe and i have that impression that those who sat down for coffee were not in a hurry to go back to work.

    I got word that guests staying in nearby hotels asking for good places for good coffee are recommended to walk a few paces to this place.

    Wi Fi came in handy for the smart phone.

    Friendly smiles from Andrew and the crew.

    Cafe 54 has had a name change to Essence Of Coffee Pier Street as partner to The Roastery at Huntingdale and the new Essence Of Coffee at Mount Street above the Busport in the CBD
